While on vacation in Missouri, hubby and I stopped in at a restaurant and I order a slice of Peach Pie that they had on the menu. What I got tasted so delicious that I had to ask the chef if he would give me his recipe. I told him where I was from and that peach was my favorite fruit pie. He told me it wasn't an original recipe and wrote out a quick version of what he used. I naturally tweaked it a bit and made it my own. I use canned peaches with mine, since they're not in season all the time. And I put a glaze on mine, while he did not.
